“Hot gathering spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

A beautiful fountain, just watch the wind shifts or you'll get wet. They show the Reds games in the square. Lots of restaurants ring the square, including the city's premier ice cream parlor.

“Splendid Fountain - Good Public Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Cincinnati has done a fantastic job blending it's Industrial Age splendor with style and needs of today. Fountain Square if a great example. It features a magnificent historic fountain "The Spirit of Water", which deserves to be called a sculpture/art more than a fountain. The surrounding Square area hosts a variety of public events. I travel here several times a year, and have seen live music, public health fairs, family events, holiday celebrations. With many nearby hotels, restaurants, bars, galleries, music and theatre, it is friendly and pleasant day and night. A Cincinnati "must"!

“A Wonderful Gathering Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Fountain Square is a great place to meet and mingle. In the summer, they have free movies on the jumbo tron and people bring their own lawn chairs, etc. It's always been a favorite spot of mine and I make an effort to go there whenever I'm downtown.

“Great place to people watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is one of those places that is great to just watch people. There are plenty of dining options to chose from, and a great ice cream parlor on the corner. Very fun.
